Ashley Graham credits her success to her ''bold moves''.

The 30-year-old beauty has emerged as one of the world's best-known models over recent years, and Ashley claims that her feisty nature has been the key to her rise to the top of the fashion industry.

She shared: ''The boldest move I've ever made for my career is standing up to people in power ... and making career moves and career changes.

''And knowing that no matter what, the move you're about to make is the one that could either change your life and your career or everything could fall apart.''

The brunette beauty revealed that her ambition for 2018 is to make it ''even more epic than 2017''.

But Ashley - who has appeared on the cover of magazines such as Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and Glamour - insisted she won't be starting a family with her husband Justin Ervin this year.

Asked about the possibility of having kids, Ashley told 'Entertainment Tonight': ''No, not in 2018. There ain't no babies coming out of here!''

Ashley is known around the world for her curvaceous figure.

And the American star feels that her body has ''changed many peoples' lives''.

Speaking previously about her own perceptions of beauty, Ashley explained: ''Being accepted was wrapped up in sex. I don't want women to think like that. I want them to learn from my mistakes ...

''I think that the more vulnerable I was, the easier it was going to be for someone to relate to me. I definitely think that my body has changed many peoples' lives.

''I've used my body as a tool to talk about taboo subjects, such as cellulite or being insecure about lower belly fat - and also [how to] talk life into your body and have an affirmation kind of conversation with yourself. And I know the lives that have been.''
